    Most linux distributions come with the option to install an NNTP server, but i cant say i've heard of a Windows NNTPd

    Perhaps if you know someone who uses linux they can host a passworded NNTP for you?

    Check out a Newsgroup service like EasyNews (www.easynews.com). They offer unlimited USENET access for $9 per month.

    Also some websites like http://groups.google.com. They offer unlimited free USENET browsing and posting
